Ebisu

Craving sushi? Here’s a place in SF you could go to!

The nigiri were petite, as you can tell by comparing them to the lemon wedges. They were sweet and only needed a little ponzu sauce to enhance their flavor.

Kobe Beef Sashimi

Yes, it’s raw, but don’t let that scare you because this is definitely worth trying! They give you three different sauces to have it with.

Oyster Barnabi: Oyster w/ Uni, Uzura (Quail Egg), Ikura (Salmon Roe), and Ponzu

I wouldn’t mind going to Ebisu just for this. This is my favorite oyster and uni combo in the bay because the flavors were well balanced and the oyster and uni were fresh. I like to think of the Barnabi as a “baby shooter” ^__^

Hamachi Toro

Wao (I just said what you just said in your mind huh? keke). Let’s all take a moment right now and just admire the way the light is hitting the fish. This was one of the most beautiful pieces of hamachi I had ever seen (and tasted)! I can feel it melting in my mouth just from looking at it…

So fatty. So good.
(In fact, the salmon toro was so fatty that I still tasted its oils in my mouth during the car ride home)

For those of you who don’t like raw fish, Ebisu offers a lot of cooked items as well, such as lobster tempura, chawanmushi, and sukiyaki. They don’t take reservations and parking is hard to find around the area, so be prepared and go early!
